Leicester City could be about to make a move for Bohemians striker Ali Reghba, after the forward impressed Claude Puel on a recent trial at the King Power Stadium, according to the Football Insider website.

The Foxes look to be leading what is a strong list of competition for the player, who has Algerian descent but is who also has an Irish passport, which will allow him to move to England.

Leicester appear to be competing with the likes of Middlesbrough, Brentford and Leeds United for his signature, but the fact they have had him on trial this week appears to be a positive in their chances of securing his services.

Reghba impressed during a two-week trial at the Riverside Stadium last month, and clearly caught the eye of the Foxes coaching staff too.

The Republic of Ireland under-19 international is yet to really make a breakthrough over in Ireland, but his talent has been seen away from the spotlight and he looks set for a big move away from Bohemians at some point in the future.

Puel is well known for purchasing youngsters who have the skillset that he can hone and improve on, and it would appear that Leicester have found another such player for him to work his magic on.

The Foxes need to think about their attacking options moving forward, with Shinji Okazaki widely expected to be leaving the King Power, if not in January, then certainly in the summer, while Jamie Vardy is getting no younger.

Reghba scored twice on his debut for Bohemians back in September, which alerted him to a number of clubs, including Leicester, and with the youngster showing an eye for a goal it is no surprise that Puel is after him.

It remains to be seen whether the Foxes sign the Irishman, but him impressing in his trial at the King Power will certainly have done his hopes of a move no harm.
